Among those monuments of the Acropolis, Parthenon is the most magnificent dedicated to the goddess Athena, protector of the Ancient city of Athens.

After this, we take you to Delphi. With evocative ruins surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery, Delphi is surely the most beautiful site in Greece.

Poros Town rests in a narrow strait between Poros Island and the Peloponnese, quietly nestled in the embrace of deep green pine forests and mildly scented lemon groves. Hydra is the beloved muse of painters, craftsmen and photographers. Its unique architecture, crystal clear waters, splendid craft & jewel shops, folk art and the island’s traditional means of transport – the donkey, make it one of the last examples of “living Mediterranean history”.

Aegina is known for its rich history, inspiring pistachio grove landscapes, picturesque seaside villages with taverns, traditional shops and beautiful golden beaches.

After this we take you to the Pasabagi in Zelve area where monks used to live in seclusion in rock cut rooms. Proceed to the pottery town of Avanos where Kizilirmak (Hallys), the longest river of Turkey, meanders leaving the red clay on its banks that has been the raw material of pottery for centuries.

Dr. Satish Malhotra:

We, a group of twelve persons wish to visit Turkey & Greece from Delhi in the month of June. We also want to attend Inauguration ceremony of World Summer Games to be held on twenty fifth of June at Athens, so one night extra stay.
Is it possible for you to accommodate us rather in three star hotel.
We will prefer to eat out trying local delicacies of our choice except may be 2 days.
Can you quote the revised price for the same?
Thanks

BalajiMajumdar:

Can you pl suggest me whether you have any departure dates during April 2011 to Greece & Turkey ?

Gallipoli Tours:

I have already been in Gallipoli actually and I enjoyed the staying in the old part of Troy for this time and visiting the historical monuments there. I took a private guide to visit gallipoli and troy I can say that these places are fantastic toursingallipoli.com I visited these places by recommendation of my friend and even I am not so interested in Historical places I was very affected by these monuments. These places are must while visiting gallipoli. I thought that these places are best attractions to see in gallipoli. You can just spend 4 hours for that. Thank you so much…

After breakfast check out and transfer to Port Piraeus and depart by boat to Mykonos Island at 0735 hrs.
Arrive Mykonos Island at 1250 hrs. Transfer to the hotel and check in. Rest of the day at leisure to relax
on this beautiful island. This is the most famous of Greek Islands in the Aegean Sea and one of the
world’s most popular holiday resorts. Mykonos is a grand example of unique Cycladic architecture set
around a picturesque fishing-village bay. Totally whitewashed organic cube-like buildings fit closely
together to form a kind of haphazard maze of narrow alley ways and streets. The earthen colors of the
bare hills which surround the town’s gleaming whiteness is set between the aura of an incredibly blue sky
and even deeper blue sparkling sea. Its many well preserved windmills and hundreds of tiny red-roofed
churches adds a flavor of culture and custom to the scene, enhanced even further by many museums and
the historical ancient site of nearby Delos. Put this together with all the island’s other qualities and it is no
wonder Mykonos has been often named “the jewel” of the Aegean Sea. Relax in your resort. Overnight at
the resort.

Day 04 Mykonos Island
After breakfast, day at leisure to explore the place on your own or relax at your hotel. Mykonos is a
wonderful kaleidoscope of cosmopolitan shops, rocking bars, quaint windmills, homey taverns and
hidden churches all set against a brilliant blue backdrop. And it’s not just the water that sparkles in the sun
on Mykonos, but also the white marble streets and buildings that characterize the island’s architecture.
The beaches on the south shore of the island are the most popular with fine sand and water that is perfect
for swimming. Ornos and Psarou beaches are the favorite among families, but Psarou is also ideal for
water sports of all kinds, including windsurfing, water-skiing and diving. Paradise and Super Paradise
beaches attract the young and beautiful while the quiet cove at Agrari beach is the place to relax.
Take a break from the beach and explore the capital town of Chora, wander the streets of Little Venice or
check out one of the island’s monasteries to take in some history. At night it becomes clear why Mykonos
is touted as one of the most hedonistic islands around, with a wild night life fit for Dionysus. The party
starts with a toast to the sunset in Little Venice and continues through the night at the dance clubs and
bars tucked away in town or along Paradise Beach. Overnight at the resort.

Day 05 Mykonos Island – Santorini Island

the famous submerged caldera, the volcano’s crater, which is situated today in the middle of a 32 square
miles basin of water. Around the basin, hanging on cliffs of 150m to 300m height, one can admire some
